Missouri Youth Soccer Members,

As noted in a separate announcement, US Youth Soccer has extended their suspension of play to at least May 1st with further assessment being made moving forward. Additionally, US Youth announced that both the National Championship Series and the Presidents Cup Series have both cancelled in their entirety for this season. With this new information we wanted to update you on the state of play in Missouri:

  1. Missouri shall continue to observe the suspension of play by US Youth Soccer. This suspension shall continue to be reviewed and may be extended/altered as needed to align with directives from state and local governments and health authorities.
  2. Currently the Missouri Governor’s Office and Missouri HHS have released guidance which prohibits activities of this kind. This along with your local authorities should guide all member activities and all decision making during the pandemic.
  3. The Missouri Presidents Cup is now officially cancelled, full refunds shall be distributed over the next 15 business days. A separate e-mail to all coaches and managers will be sent with more information in the next few days.
  4. At this time, the USYS Midwest Conference shall move forward once play can resume. Games scheduled in St. Louis for May 1-3 are on hold due to the new RTP date of May 1. More information shall be forthcoming directly from Midwest Conference on this shortly.
  5. Although there is no Regional or National Championship, at this time we will continue with the Missouri State Cup, although the format may differ from the traditional model. An email shall go out by this Friday to coaches allowing all teams to withdraw for a full refund should they choose, or they can choose to participate in a single weekend event over June 5-7th to name a State Cup Champion. This of course is contingent on being able to resume play and the fees shall be reviewed once the format is determined and refunds distributed as appropriate.

We will continue to monitor the situation within Missouri and update you with the hopes that Missouri Clubs and Leagues may be able to get a partial season or tournament played during the summer months in these unprecedented times.

When we can resume play, we hope that all our members will pull together and support one another during this time including selecting a Missouri based tournament to help the sport and your fellow members within the state.

Be safe, we are in this together…
